EIGHTY-SIXTH OHIO INFANTRY

     The regiment was recruited originally for the three months' service, and then reorganized for six months' service.  The former organization was effected in May 1862, under a special call to repel Jackson, who had defeated Banks, and was threatening to invade the North.  It did guard duty at Grafton, Virginia, Parkersburgh, and other points, and moved to Beverly and elsewhere to repel an enemy which did not exist.  The regiment was mustered out at Camp Delaware, at the expiration of its term.
     The six months' regiment was raised by a number of officers of the old organization, headed by Major (afterwards Colonel) Lemert, of Bucyrus.  It was moved to Zanesville, to join in the pursuit of Morgan, then on his raid through Ohio, but was too late to be of much service.  Returning to Camp Tod, it was in August ordered to Kentucky, as a part of the expedition against Cumberland Gap, which was taken by the Federal forces.  The Eighty-sixth took possession of and "held the fort," remaining there as a garrison, subsisting scantily off the country, and skirmishing often with guerillas, until its term of service was over, when it returned to Ohio and was mustered out at Cleveland February 10, 1863.
